Poem: “Time and Eternity”

Time and Eternity

The truly desolate
And pathetic sort,
Are those who of Earth
Believe
Elysian Fields they can create
In time, to quell their fears.
Not so, not so,
For what would heaven be,
If on earth everything,
Here,
Was granted
Free
To thee?

    I appreciate the references to mythology, poet Peterson. The rhymes are also welcome. Historically, every paradise that was designed by man became a living hell. The Maker and Restorer of Paradise is on His way, anew.
